O.J. Guilty on All Counts - Live Blog
Update: O.J. guilty on all counts, live blog of verdict below.
It was 13 years ago today that the jury reached a not guilty verdict in his murder trial.
The charges they face include 11 felonies (Conspiracy to commit kidnapping; conspiracy to commit burglary; burglary while in possession of a deadly weapon; and two counts each of first degree kidnapping with use of a deadly weapon; robbery with use of a deadly weapon; assault with a deadly weapon; and coercion with use of a deadly weapon. They also face one gross misdemeanor, conspiracy to commit a crime.
The jury has the power to drop "use of a deadly weapon" from the nine weapons-related charges if they choose to do so.
I watched the closing arguments this afternoon at The Legal Edge. I finished feeling nervous for O.J., thinking he needs a holdout. With the verdict coming in this soon, I'm not optimistic he got one. And yes, I'm rooting for O.J.
I'll live-blog the verdict below.
